Despite concerns over stagnating or even declining sales, the fatty acids remain a star player in the nutritional ingredients segment.

The science continues to grow almost exponentially with omega-3s being linked to an ever-increasing number of health conditions.

In this editorial webinar, NutraIngredients-USA dives deep into the omega-3 waters to explore the supply chain, quality standards, innovative new forms and products, the state of the science, and how the industry feels moving forward.
